Small Game Recipes: Rabbit: Broiler Barbecued Rabbit
  • 1 dressed rabbit, 1 1/2 lbs
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 4 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup water

Start oven (broiler) 10 min before baking; set to 350 F. Clean and wash the rabbit thoroughly. Cut into serving pieces. Place in bowl, cover with cold water and add salt. Soak 1-1/2 hrs. Drain and pat dry with absorbent paper or cloth. Melt butter in saucepan, remove from heat, add remaining ingredients and beat thoroughly. Dip rabbit pieces in sauce and arrange on aluminum-foil-lined shallow pan and place under broiler 3 inches from source of heat. Broil 30 min basting with remaining sauce every 10 min. After top side is well browned, turn rabbit, increase heat to 375 F, and broil another 40 min, basting frequently. Then turn oven to 400 F and broil 15 min so that meat browns richly. Remove to platter; pour remaining sauce in broiler pan over rabbit.

Note: If larger rabbits are broiled, increase seasonings proportionately to the increase in weight.
